Flipster is the new way to digitally read magazines on your computer, tablet, iPad or smartphone. All for free!
You can access Flipster on our website by clicking on the button on the left side of our home screen or find it on the menu under “Search — eBooks & More”. If you would like to read your magazine offline, simply download it to the Flipster app (free from your app provider). Many magazines can be kept on the Flipster app indefinitely, and some have loan periods which will be “returned” to the library automatically. Back issues through June, 2014 are also available.
For a hands-on demonstration, you can sign up for our class on January 25 at 2:00 by calling 810-0314.
(As of January 2, 2017, OverDrive will no longer offer magazines.)
